We fly high, no lie, you know this

So, high-waisted skirts…what is there to say about high-waisted skirts…

For starters, a high-waisted skirt is a very tricky piece of clothing to wear.  If it doesn’t sit correctly on your torso, it can make you look like you have a beer belly.  Not exactly something anyone, let alone a lady, would like to accentuate.

These skirts can also have the reverse effect…literally.  It has the uncanny ability to make your posterior look like a blimp’s exterior.

Moral of the story?  Be extremely careful when shopping for this high-waisted, trendy trickster.  After this intro to your average empire waisted skirts, I’m sure you’re probably wondering why you should even purchase one.  The answer is simple: the right high-waisted skirt can make you look phenominal, classy, and chic.  What more could a girl want?

If you find the right skirt, then your waist will look tiny, as the skirt itself is designed to have a very slimming look.  Once again…make sure you buy the right size.

Crash course in sizing:  If you stick with the same size all the time, you might be tricking yourself.  Remember, not all clothing fits the same way.  Be especially careful with the empire waisted skirts, please… and save us all from gagging!  If the skirt is too tight, you will look like all the horrible things I mentioned earlier.  Ew.  So, please, when you’re choosing, choose very carefully.  Use the guide below to help you out,  and enjoy being chic, fashionable and queen of the hourglass figure.

Guide to Buying the Perfect Empire Waisted Skirt:

  1. Try it on before leaving the store.
  2. If you can spot any lumps, take the thing off and get a bigger size.  Spanx can’t solve all of your problems.
  3. Make sure it hits right at the knee or just a teensy bit above the knee.  If it’s too short, your legs will look fat.  Not sexy…at all.
  4. Please listen to these rules, so you can spare all of our eyes from hidiousness.
